Turning Purpose Into Profit With Melyssa Griffin + Ask Shannah

We’ve all heard of those people who launch online businesses and make a million dollars, and yet it all still seems a bit unbelievable. Almost on accident, Melyssa Griffin transformed her once website design job into a multi-million dollar online business teaching others how to transform their own business…but at the end of the day, she felt a bit purposeless. Something I think we all can relate to, no matter our career.

On This Podcast Episode:

If you’re thinking this whole making money online thing is not realistic, then you need to meet Melyssa. She’s not only incredibly successful at her own business, but she spends her day helping others find their own Pursuit With Purpose (that’s even the name of her podcast). However, the money lessons that Melyssa has learned along the way might shock you (and you need to hear no matter what your career is).

Ask Shannah – How can I get my partner (soon to be spouse) on the same money page with me?

How You Earn, Save, And Spend Your Money – Alanna Okun

What does how you earn, save and spend your money say about your overall relationship with money – a lot actually.

Some of us spend more money to “look the part” in our careers and some of us can get away with comfy pants and ripped sweatshirts (although I urge you to never go to work this way). What writer Alanna Okun has found in her series, How Do You Shop on Racked is that our uniqueness to spending and saving money is also the tie that binds us all together.

On This Podcast Episode:

We’re getting down and dirty with Racked’s writer and editor, Alanna Okun, about the series How Do You Shop in this episode. Alanna shares some of the most surprising discoveries she’s learned from talking to many different women from across the U.S. about their own saving and spending money stories.

Alanna’s also got quite a money story herself. Living in NYC and working for Racked and BuzzFeed prior, she’s sharing her own wisdom about being smart with her cash and her exciting career journey (hint, she’s launching her first book, The Curse Of The Boyfriend Sweater in March).

A New Revolution In Higher Education – Adam Braun, MissionU

Attending college in the United States comes at a price. It feels almost – dare I say – criminal to me.

We tell students that you have to go to college if you want to get a good job – so you go to college, take on a ton of student debt or work yourself crazy to pay for college – and then you graduate…and then there aren’t jobs that will pay a salary worthy of your student loan bill. It doesn’t feel right to me…but I don’t know what the solution is really.

On This Podcast Episode:

I want to introduce you to a new alternative to higher education, Adam Braun, who started MissionU to change our broken education system and offer a fresh approach to learning. Imagine going to school without the burden of student loans and having companies like Lyft, Spotify, and Warby Parker help develop the curriculum and have early access to hire graduates.

I’m dishing all things MissionU with Adam in this podcast episode and uncovering why he’s so motivated and inspired to take on an old broken education system
